Black Ants: Bite, Types, Size | Western Exterminator

Ants can come in different colors, black being one of them. You may see both big black ants and small black ants, and unless youre an ant species expert, you may not know the difference between these creatures. Anytime you detect ants in your home or business, it can be scary. What are some kinds of black ants you might see out West? And should you be worried about them? Find answers to these questions below, plus more details.

Western Exterminator is your local specialist in all things ants. No matter if black ants or ants of another color have trespassed on your property, we can help you get rid of them. Our experts understand ant species and will provide an effective approach to treatment. Call Western at 800-937-8398 today to get rid of ants on your premises.

If you have seen large black ants, they may be carpenter ants. The western black carpenter ant (camponotus modoc) is found on the West Coast and in states like Arizona and Idaho. These large ants are black and their legs are dark red. Workers are about to inches in length (queens are longer). Western black carpenter ant workers are dull black in color; their legs are reddish and their abdomens have golden hairs.

While termites famously eat wood, carpenter ants do not eat it; rather, they dig out wood in order to create nests. Actually, you may be able to hear western black carpenter ant activity. Its also possible for C. modoc nests to be located in insulation whereas the primary nest is commonly located outdoors in wood such as trees and timbers. If you see carpenter ants inside during winter, their presence may be due to an indoor nest.

Due to the property damage carpenter ants may cause, you should get in touch with a pest professional such as Western Exterminator as soon as possible so any issues do not worsen.

Big black ants arent the only black ants you can notice – you may also see small black ants. If this is the case, you may have come across the species monomorium minimum, or the little black ant. Its not too hard to guess where the common name of this creature comes from – it is quite small and dark brown to black. This species is located in the eastern U.S. as well as the San Francisco Bay Area and the southern part of California. Little black ant workers are about 1/16 inches in length and are about half the length of queens.

Little black ants use dead and alive insects for food as well as feces of aphids and scales. They may also turn to food inside, such as grease and oil. Little black ants reside beneath debris and stones, and can also take up nests in wall voids and beneath carpets.

Should you be concerned about black ant bites? Well, it depends on the type of ant. Little black ants possess a stinger, but typically it is not big enough to do damage. On the other hand, carpenter ants can induce a burning feeling with their with their bites, as they can introduce formic acid. If you ever experience some kind of severe or strange reaction from an ant bite or sting, contact a medical professional.

Certain ants have wings. Commonly, these male and female ants materialize from nests and mate. Among western black carpenter ants, swarmers in a colony may not appear for several years. They swarm during the late afternoon. You may see little black ants with wings from June to August.

If you see many ants swarming inside, an ant nest could be located in or near the property. In this case, its best to contact a pest management expert to resolve any problems.

Ants do not belong in a home or business, plain and simple. If you want to avoid carpenter ants, try to trim branches of trees so they do not touch your structure. Also, keep firewood apart from the building and off of the ground.

If youve got a serious black ant infestation or suspect you might have one, reach out to Western Exterminator today. Ant management is best done with the help of someone whos trained in ant control instead of trying to stop the pests all by yourself. We will use a method that fixes the issue so ants are completely removed. Our pest specialists can help you understand how to keep black ants from coming back.

When it comes to handling ant problems in general, Western Exterminator knows how to pinpoint the type of ant species at hand and use the appropriate treatment to eliminate the issue. Although control methods can vary, it may include a perimeter treatment and spot treatment inside, if needed, in the areas of ant activity.Reach out tous online to get started with eliminating the ants at your property.

How to Get Rid of Rats: Rat Control & Extermination …

Theres really nothing warm and fuzzy about rats. The notion of having them in your house or yard is enough to make you and most people squeamish. Unfortunately, theres hardly any place in the world that they wont be found.

Worse, rats are known to transmit many diseases. They also wreak havoc with their teeth, which can chew through almost anything.

Where will you find them? Rats will take up residence in a variety of places attics, basements, porches, and under concrete. The good news is that they dont have a long lifespan. The bad news is that they reproduce very quickly.

The bottom line is that once a rat infestation has been confirmed, youll want to make it go away as soon as possible.

The presence of dead or living rats is the most obvious sign of a rat infestation. Because rats prefer to hide, seeing one in plain sight can mean that the infestation is in full swing. Rat droppings may be present, as well.

Other clear signs of an infestation are large holes in floorboards and walls, and the presence of damaged materials, because rats chew constantly on materials such as plastic and wood.

The two primary species of rats in North America are the Norway rat and the roof rat.

The Norway rat, also known as brown or sewer rats, have stocky, brownish bodies, with ears and eyes that are small in relation to their body. Theyre larger than most other rat species, and more likely to inhabit the lower levels of buildings.

Roof rats have black bodies and are known for their climbing abilities. They tend to seek out elevated places such as walls, ceilings, attics and cabinets. They prefer warmer climates.

Rats are extremely resourceful and adept when it comes to entering homes. Theyre able to squeeze in even small holes and cracks, but have many easier ways of getting inside. Theyre also able to live in very small spaces.

Whether its ground vents, crawl space vents, electrical wire openings, loose siding or roof joints and more rats will take advantage of any opening to get inside a house.

Attic-dwelling rats often enter the house through the roof, but they can just as easily enter a ground-level (or below) opening and climb walls to reach their destination. Rats living in the basement typically get there from openings such as ground vents, but theyre certainly not restricted to one form of entry.

If you have rats in the attic, the first step is to find all of their potential entry points. This should be an extensive search from checking the roof and plumbing, to air conditioner vents and the chimney. And looking for signs of the rats in your attic, such as rat droppings, can lead you to entry points.

Sealing the entry points is the next step even if rats are still present because they will be easier to trap if their exit routes are sealed off.

Its best to use steel or metal flashing to close off entry points because rats can chew through wood, and even concrete.

If you plan to trap and remove the rats, you can use a snap trap which will kill the rat or a live cage trap.

Rats living in your walls are a concern for a variety of reasons, including the fact that they can damage electrical wires, cables, heating elements, and so on.

Again, the first step is to find the rodents entry points into your home. Look for active routes into the home that could include feces, urine stains, bite marks, and even greasy residue left behind from their fur.

Traps are also a good option for getting rid of rats in walls. Lethal traps are designed to kill rats quickly and humanely. If youd prefer to use live traps, do not release the rodent close to your home, because they will quickly find their way back in.

Keeping rats out of your yard begins by eliminating edible waste around your home. Bag your garbage and place it in metal containers with tight-fitting lids. Store compost in the proper processors.

If you have a bird feeder, its best to mount it on a metal polethat rats will be unable to climb. But rats can also use trees and poles near a feeder, so be careful where the feeder is placed.

The roof rat gets its name from its tendency to live in the upper areas of buildings. They tend to travel in colonies and cause the same kind of damage as other rats. Roof rats earned a nasty reputation by being the cause of the bubonic plague many moons ago. Although the disease is rare now, there are still cases every year.

To rid yourself of roof rats, seal up any hole or visible crack with silicone caulk. Also, keep trees trimmed away from the house because the rodent can gain entrance in your home that way.

There are no shortage of rat traps on the market today from snap traps, to live traps, to adhesive traps. Heres a look at each:

Snap Traps: These are the traditional types of traps, with a metal bar that snaps down on the rodent when triggered.

Live Traps: If you dont wish to kill the rat, then a live trap may be for you. The rat is simply lured into the trap which closes off around him.

Adhesive Traps: Like the snap trap, an adhesive trap isnt the most humane way to kill a rat who could get stuck in the traps glue for an extended period and starve to death. Plus, youll have to free the dead rat from the glue eventually.

Electric Traps: Electric traps are the quick killers; the rat is lured into a trap (which somewhat resembles a mailbox) with food and triggers an electrical charge strong enough to virtually kill it instantly.

For both humane reasons and effectiveness,electric traps tend to be the best option. The rat is killed quickly and theres a light on top of the unit that lets you know that theres something inside.

The Victor Rat Zapper Ultra Trap, whichgets high ratings from reviewers and customers, is available at various retail stores for around $60.

Do-it-yourself enthusiasts can make their own rat traps with a variety of materials from plastic water bottles to pipe.

The recyclable method, which uses a large soda or water bottle, is an example of a live trap in that the rat is trapped but not killed.

The most effective rat bait is food, because rats are natural scavengers. Its important to put out familiar bait, because rats tend to avoid new objects, even if its food. Still, some baits have proven effective for the various kinds of rats.

For roof rats, fruits and vegetables tend to be more attractive, while Norway rats seem to prefer meat and fish. Be careful of using bait in hard-to-get places that will spoil quickly. Peanut butter has also been used as rat bait.

Remember: The availability and kinds of human food will help determine a rodents eating habits.

Theres been no shortage of debate about the effectiveness and safety of using rat poison, and the debate includes whether its a method that may be the most inhumane method of killing the rat.

Rat poisons contain a lethal dose of anticoagulants, which will cause the rat to bleed to death internally after ingesting it. The poison doesnt kill the rat instantly, but can take days before it eventually succumbs to anemia or circulatory shock.

Other poisons,such as those using metal and zinc phosphides, are also used to kill rats.

Poisons may not be completely effective in eliminating a rat problem because its an unfamiliar source of food to rats, who tend to be cautious eaters.

An issue to keep in mind is that rat poison can have a toxic effect on mammals such as cats and dogs, as well as humans.

Some people find that getting rid of rats is an ongoing problem no matter what they try. In that case, hiring a professional exterminator can be the best and most effective solution. Plus, if youre squeamish about trying to eliminate the problem its another reason to call a pro.

Professional exterminators know how to properly use poisons and traps in a way that wont endanger children or pets. Theyll also provide advice on how to keep the rodents out of your house for good.

Professional exterminators will first assess the situation and determine a plan of action. Theyll then start a treatment program that they can adjust if the initial results arent satisfactory. Theyll use poisons, traps, and different baits to find the best solution to getting rid of your specific rodent problem.

The cost of an exterminators services will vary depending on the job, the severity of it, and the treatment plan. A severe problem may require return visits until the problem is eradicated.

Typically, pest control companies charge $90 to $250 for an initial examination. Once they complete the first examination, most companies will provide a written estimate for the type of treatment, the cleanup, repairs, and how many entry points will have to be sealed.

Everything from moth balls to ammonia to peppermint oil and human hair has been used as natural rat repellents, with middling results. One of the issues is that a great deal of the substance, whatever it may be, needs to be used and can provide an overpowering odor to humans.

Cleanliness remains the best defense against rats, who are attracted to food scraps and open garbage areas. Keeping garbage bags sealed and garbage bins secure is a great place to start in defending your home from rats.

Rats are frightened of humans and will almost always seek shelter if confronted by one. They also prefer to be active when humans arent, so the odds of you getting bit by a rat arent very high. However, rats will lunge and bite to defend themselves if cornered.

Because some species of rats carry hazardous diseases, they should be treated seriously even if the chances of infection are relatively rare. Cleanand disinfect rodent bites immediately. Some cases may require a tetanus immunization if you havent had one in some time. Despite some age-old beliefs, rats,at least in North America, do not carry rabies.

In short, its always a good idea to seek professional medical advice if youve suffered a rat bite.

Its very important to clean up after youve rid your home or business of them. Rat urine and feces pose sanitation risks, while the scent from both will attract more rats.

A common method is to spray urine and feces with a disinfectant or a mixture of bleach and water. Let it set for several minutes, then use a paper towel to dispose of the waste. Always wear rubber, latex or vinyl gloves.

Also make sure of mop floors and any areas that have evidence of rodent exposure with disinfectant or bleach solution.

Theres no way getting around it the smell of a dead rat can be downright nasty. The problem is, they can die in hard-to-reach places in walls and attics and the smell can linger for a few weeks until the body completely decomposes. Calling in a professional to break into walls can be costly, so using fans, opening fans, or using deodorizers and disinfectant sprays may be the primary solution.

The best solution, of course, is to find the dead rat, dispose of it, and then use disinfectant to clean the are where it died.

Theres nothing too complicated about removing a dead rat. But keep in mind that they can carry diseases, fleas, ticks, etc. So, be sure to wear disposable gloves.

Spray the rat with some sort of cleaner or disinfectant to kill any pests on the body. Next, pick up the rat by its tail and dispose of it in a plastic bag. Finally, dispose of the bag and dead body in a dumpster, if theres one nearby, or in a tightly-sealed garbage can.

After youre finished spray the spot where the carcass had been with cleaner. You may even want to wear old clothes that can be thrown away after the dead rodent has been removed and the final cleaning finished.

Professional service people – Have never seen a bug in my house or property

You may think that any random bug outside in Phoenix is a pest, but thats not necessarily the case. A pest is an undesired organism that negatively affects people. This could involve damaging property, biting, contaminating food or other problems. At Western Exterminator, our pest specialists are equipped to handle your pest problems.

Western Exterminator Company has taken care of homes and families for over 90 years, removing and preventing pest infestation. Western provides a wide variety of home and apartment pest control services to defend you, including ants, roaches, rodents, termites and bees.

Termites are widely considered the #1 pest in Arizona and the Phoenix area. While many types of termites are active throughout the Copper State, subterranean termites pose the greatest threat to homes and businesses.

Partner with Western Exterminator for termite control and prevention solutions. Ask about our termite fumigation and termite monitoring services. Our local exterminators have years of experience treating the most common termite species in Metro Phoenix.

Spiders can be very frightening, but keep in mind that just a small number of spider species are seen as dangerous to people.

Urban PestsAs the third most populous city in the United States, Chicago, IL, offers plenty of incentives for people and pests to settle down. Common urban pest problems include:

AntsWith 12 major ant species in the city, local residents are likely to find these pests both outside and in homes. During wet weather, odorous house ants or pavement ants move indoors in large numbers to seek higher ground. Trash cans, pantry goods, and food crumbs also attract them inside for an easy meal.

Norway RatsNorway rats are the main urban rat species in Chicago. While the city examines cases of infestation, large urban areas struggle to keep the rodents in check. The Norway rat is a digging pest that burrows in the ground and may gain entrance through foundation cracks, by digging under foundations, or climbing from sewers into buildings. One of the more sensational, but true, ways in which rats may gain inside entrance is by swimming through sewer pipes and exiting inside via the common commode. They eat out of pantries, other stored or spilled foods, damage property, and spread disease.

Indoor PestsIn addition to cities, the following nuisance pests are equally comfortable in the suburbs, infesting Chicago houses and apartments:

SpidersAble to climb walls with ease and fit through tiny holes, these arachnids are hard to keep out of homes. Illinois species include house, wolf, and jumping spiders. Though such pests are mostly harmless, residents sometimes spot the dangerous northern black widow spider as well.

Stink BugsBrown marmorated stink bugs are a familiar seasonal pest to Chicago homeowners. The flat, shield-shaped insects overwinter in walls, attics, and other indoor places. People often see them in the fall as the pests search for places to hunker down, or in the spring when they emerge. These stink bugs dont bite or hurt humans, but a stink bug gives off a foul smell if crushed and they can become a serious nuisance.
